New Hindu crematorium proposed in Malaysia's Penang state
Georgetown (Malaysia), Oct. 6 (ANI): The Hindu Endowment Board of Malaysian state Penang has proposed to convert a site in Balik Pulau as a Hindu burial and cremation ground.
Keeping in view the overcrowded Hindu cemeteries in the state, the board had estimated the need 20,334 square metre land.
The New Strait Times quoted board commissioner Raveen Tharan, as saying that the main cemetery in Batu Lanchang had run out of space.
"The Hindu population in Penang is rising rapidly each year, but the unoccupied cemetery areas are fast diminishing.
"We have identified the new site and forwarded the proposal to the state government for deliberation," Tharan said. (ANI)
